Paul Gillmor (R-Ohio) 1939-2007

Republican Congressman Paul Gillmor was found dead this morning in his apartment in Washington, D.C.

CNN reports members of his staff found him dead in his apartment after he failed to show up to work on Congress' first day back from Summer recess.

Gillmor has served in Congress since 1989 representing the 5th district of Ohio, located in the northwestern portion of the state including Bowling Green, Tiffin, Fremont and Norwalk.

Gillmor is the third member of Congress to pass away this year, after Charlie Norwood (R-Georgia) in February and Juanita Millender-McDonald (D-California) in April. Gillmor's seat will be filled by a special election.
